Why Don't you find out? You can only really tell if you actually go through clearing and do something. (Don't know much about it but I feel that it is the only way.)

Unfortunately I think you might struggle to get into Engineering this year. You might need to look into doing some resits or taking additional qualifications.

Hey, I am sorry to hear about your disappointing results. But don't worry about it because time flies and soon your little problem would be forgotten about. What I would do in your position is try and find a university that may accept you, so look for low ranking universities like middlesex university, reading etc. If that does not work may go forward to do a foundation year, or the other option what I suggest is to repeat those subjects. Another option is to consider an apprenticeship.Good Luck !

Might be worth looking into Engineering with Foundation Year courses. If you can't find a course in Clearing for this year, you still have some options. See this thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=3401311

Sorry to hear it hasnt gone well. Have a cry if you need to, then spend 30 mins thinking why it might have gone this wrong.
Do you feel you struggled and the subjects werent for you or didnt you work hard enough?

By all means ask clearing, but prepare yourself for a no, in which case you have to decide your next move.

There are plenty of advisors online now, but my preferred option is rather than throw yourself at a degree at any uni just for the sake of getting in I would go away and id whether engineering is for you, then resit 2 A levels


Your other alternatives are:

Degrees with foundation years, which will accept even lower than the normal entry grades.

Different degrees, but be wary of just scrambling to get any uni course as its a waste of money going somewhere you dont want to go for a course that doesnt interest you.

Get a job/ apprenticeship

See if you can do an Access course.

Other college courses.

Hello, so I've just got my results and I have got EEUA in subjects chemistry, maths and biology and an A in Arabic. I have called up Coventry University and they have offered me a place for a BA Electro-mechanical Engineering course. I'm stuck in two minds here, whether to retake my A-levels and possibly get better grades or go ahead and go with this course. If I do good in the first year, is there a possibility of me transferring to a better Uni, for example Aston University to do something like Mechanical Engineering? I'm stuck here and I don't know what to do, and time is running out. Help.

There may be a possibility to transfer, I would maybe contact Aston tomorrow and see if they can advise you.

If you are not sure about the uni, taking a gap year and retaking is not a bad thing.

Well done on getting an offer In theory you can apply for 2nd year entry, but not all unis will offer this

They’re pretty low grades. Is that what you were expecting? Do you know what you could have improved to do better?

what would you want to study at university? Or do afterwards? There’s a lot of options available to you but you need to give us a bit more information about yourself so we can help

They were not my expected grades, I was predicted BBC but obviously, that did not go to plan so I am trying to find the best option for my future. I wanted to study engineering at uni.

Do you think if you resit you'll be able to do better? Or are you in a rush to get to university asap and willing to pay for a foundation year?

I can do better if I resit but it's just a matter of if it will be worth it to resit instead of going straight to uni. I'm still thinking about resitting but I need to consider the advantages and disadvantages of this before I make a final decision as time is running out.

Have you considered studying a foundation year?

At Kingston University we have an Engineering foundation year, and still have places available via Clearing. Why not give our Clearing Hotline a call: 0800 0483 334 to discuss your application and what potential options we have for you?

Best of luck,
- Jessy from Kingston University

Look at Engineering with a Foundation year - this is a good option.
